[11:30] Zhong Jianli pointed out that after receiving a call from the infection control director of Tuen Mun Hospital this morning, there was a third case where there was a need to "see it clearly" in the emergency department's treatment process. He arrived at the emergency room on the evening of the 23rd. Since there were two negative-pressure wards in use in the emergency room, the patient was placed in a traumatic room. The patient stayed for three to four hours, and after inspection, it was found that the room was not negative. Patients have a chance to be affected. "I have asked colleagues and experts to look at the whole process and see how much risk it will affect other patients.

Zhong Jianli pointed out that there is a small area outside the room, waiting for X-rays, not for the densely populated lobby. The Centre for Health Protection was notified for a risk assessment and failed to answer how much the risk was. However, the room used by the patient will be thoroughly disinfected before being used again.

When asked about the difference between a negative pressure ward and an ordinary ward, Zhong Jianli said that negative pressure is to isolate airborne pathogens, such as chicken pox and lung diarrhea. Wuhan pneumonia is a droplet transmission, mainly within three feet. Wuhan pneumonia should be treated in a negative pressure ward, mainly because it is afraid of aerosolization measures such as sputum, it will turn droplets into airborne in a short time, so it is necessary to be in a negative pressure ward. Therefore, I will go to Tuen Mun Hospital immediately to see clearly.

Zhang Zhujun said that the daughters of the fourth and fifth confirmed patients had fevers about the same time as their parents.

Worried about more patients after the Spring Festival holiday, the hospital will be more stressed. There are five medical colleagues in public hospitals reporting because of the reporting mechanism. They will detect the new coronavirus and the situation is basically stable. Two of them have had a cold but have been to Shenzhen Hospital. Some colleagues are wearing full equipment, but have contacted the patient and had a cold. So isolate first. One has been discharged, three have tested negative for the new coronavirus, and the others are watching. Zhong Jianli clarified that she would not arrange pregnant employees to work in high-risk places. For example, negative pressure rooms and shunts are high-risk, but there are other places in the emergency department that are not high-risk. They will consider colleagues' concerns and their own ideas.

There are currently two medical practitioners in isolation, and Zhong Jianli clarified that there is no need to take a big vacation for isolation.
